LUFC - Grayson confident ahead of clash

Simon Grayson is confident that Leeds can keep their second successive clean sheet this weekend after finally keeping their first for fourteen games last weekend.

Leeds entertain Peterborough United on Saturday who currently sit in the play off positions and Grayson knows if Leeds are going to get back into the promotion race then they need to beat the teams that are currently above them.

Peterborough brought to an end a six game winning run for Leeds at the start of October when they won 2-0 at London Road and Grayson will be hoping that his new look defence can help Leeds gain revenge.

On loan defenders Richard Naylor and Carl Dickinson are likely to make their Elland Road debuts after impressing in last weekends 2-0 win at Brighton.

Grayson is aware that the Peterborough strike force will be a much sterner test for his defence than the one at Brighton and speaking in the YEP he said 'The two lads up front are a handful, they've shown that they do score goals.
It's a good chance for us to see how we can cope against a potent strike force. You can't get away from the fact that you have to be aware of the danger they pose.
We won't treat them any differently to how we treated Brighton and we've got a clean sheet behind us now".

Peterborough who were promoted from League Two last season have continued with the momentum that took them up and have only lost one League game since the end of August when they was beaten 4-0 at Leicester in December.
